Didn't need Ings input there - the SIA statement said exactly this.

Regardless of whether he can break the silence, it doesn't mean he should. Learn from essendon's fu**up - get the outcome sorted then run your mouth off about the process.

'Willie Rioli case needs to be resolved quicker, says frustrated AFL boss Gillon McLachlan' in October of last year.

If only Gil had some sort of pull at the AFL.

I don't care if nobody agrees with me, but I think he needs to have final penalty reduced for this absolute BS.
He should've known his fate before 2020 preseason.
I think somewhere in the vicinity of 6 month reduction.
For what it's worth, I agree.
I'm tipping a 2 year ban reduced to 18 months with a 6 month good behaviour "bond".

As has been pointed out a few times over the course of this, there’s no capacity in the anti-drug rules for a “good behaviour bond” to be part of a penalty.

Because a second offence is basically a life ban, there’s not much point giving someone a life ban plus the six months left over from their first offence.

Okay then, 24 months with 6 months deducted for ******* him around.

You say that but let’s not forget it’s the AFL that are handing down the penalty after all.

Pointless is in their DNA
